Day 1.

Arrival in Shanghai.

sunny

After a long flight to Beijing and then a mad dash to make our transfer to Shanghai we made it.
From Pudong airport we took the Maglev to the centre of Shanghai. Reaching a top speed of 431km it only took 8 minutes. A taxi would take about an hour, we're told.
It is very hot and humid at the moment, and we are still getting used to using backpacks for the first time. Waiting for our room to be cleaned, freshen up then we are off to do some sightseeing. Mayet enjoying her first beer of the day!
